My vote:
Frank Sinatra - performer of Three Coins in the Fountain from Three Coins in the Fountain (1954)
Also performer of All the Way from The Joker Is Wild (1957)
Also performer of High Hopes from A Hole in the Head (1959)

My favorite scene with Frank Sinatra is when he played Charlie Y. Reader in The Tender Trap. He shows Debbie Reynolds as Julie Gillis how to phrase the song The Tender Trap. This scene illustrates why Frank Sinatra is a great singer, but also shows proper singing technique.

It's live! Peter or Dan could you please edit the initial post to reflect this?

My choice is between Glen Hansard, Sam Smith and Adele. I'll probably wait a few weeks and vote for whichever of those has the least threats.
